After graduating from Durham University with a BA (Hons) Combined Arts, I went on to work in teaching, training, marketing and media research. I hold a Diploma in Transformational Coaching from Animas (2018) and recently became an accredited Youth and Education Coach (Animas, 2021).

More importantly I have life experience in being stuck, wondering who I am, divorce, being the sandwich generation, parenting teenagers, and all the other stuff that comes with being unarmed in the no man's land that is midlife. When I'm not dodging life's bullets, I love creative writing as it allows me to live life vicariously through my characters. I also love running, dancing and red wine, although not always at the same time. I'm not sure if I'm an introvert extrovert or an extrovert introvert, but I can feel overwhelmed by places that are too peopley and I can be the life and soul of the party, but only until 9pm. Solitude is my sanctuary, where I recharge my batteries and reconnect with my inner peace. With myself, not by myself.

 My life's good - it's not perfect but it's real. I certainly haven't got it all figured out, but when life throws me a challenge, I can handle it with the tools I've learned through coaching and personal growth. I would love to share my coaching approach with you, and get you to the other side of whatever challenge you're facing.
